To celebrate the 50th anniversary of both the self-titled Black Sabbath
debut LP and second longplayer Paranoid, Sacred Bones Records released
‘What Is This That Stands Before Me?‘ last May. A compilation of Sabbath
covers recorded by artists from across their roster, with The Soft Moon, Thou,
Uniform, Hilary Woods, and more.
One of the most remarkable efforts is by melodramatic and
theatrical artist ZOLA JESUS. Her spine-tingling voice makes
your hair stand up in the back of your neck. Jaw-dropping
tour de force.
Here’s the original…

THE HIGH TROPICS is an Australian indie band centered around singer/songwriter
Josh Stewart. After ardent single ‘Feel The Same’ earlier this year the band now shared new piece ‘CHANGES‘. A fiery, highly passionate mid-tempo humdinger with Stewart‘s towering vocals lifting the song to a fervent level that causes goosebumps. Top cut!

‘Changes’ by DAVID BOWIE
Forty-five years ago today – on 7 January 1972 – DAVID BOWIE released CHANGES as a
single in the UK, with acoustic song ‘Andy Warhol‘ as B-side. Both tracks were on his 4th album Hunky Dory. Despite only reaching No 49 on the charts, this is one of The Thin White Duke‘s best known and highly praised songs. The late legend said at the time:
“it started out as a parody of a nightclub song, a kind of throwaway”. A compositional diamond about artistic development it became! With Mick Ronson on strings, Rick
Wakeman (once a Yes man) on keyboards, some sultry saxophone in the end by the
man himself and an overall passionate vocal performance. Intriguing and hypnotizing.
A true classic…
